ABOUT

ABOUT

I am a full-time portrait and wedding photographer with over ten years of experience. I work predominately with people; from beautiful newborn babies through to families and weddings – you name it, I’ve probably captured it!

Realising that your photoshoot or wedding is a highly personal experience to you, I pride myself in capturing those authentic moments; precious memories and important milestones through the lens. My focus is to create full-of-life, natural imagery which tells your story, in its true form. No awkward, rigid posing, just fun, fresh and natural photography.

I am incredibly patient, passionate and professional and I’m sure you’ll see this when you meet me. I can quickly put people at ease, and can work in high pressure situations; drawing on my energy and enthusiasm to give you beautiful results.

If you’re looking for a friendly, creative photographer who will bring an abundance of energy to your wedding or photoshoot, then please do get in touch here or via my Facebook or Instagram. I really would love to hear from you!

“We recently had Dakes come and do a studio shoot in the comfort of our own home. It was perfect. Dakes made us all feel at ease. Nothing was rushed and we managed to get a some decent pictures of our baby (even though he wasn’t very happy)! My eldest son loved every minute and took full advantage of the camera. Thank you again! Beautiful photos for us to treasure as a family.”

“Totally recommend Dakes as a photographer, she is really friendly and put both of my children as ease really quickly. The pictures are beautiful. The shoot was done fairly quickly (a must with two kids), so no one got bored and she photographed everyone while they were still happy! I will definitely use Dakes again, thank you.”

WEDDINGS

I love all aspects of photographing weddings – from our initial client meeting before your big day, all the way through to delivering your photographs to you.

On the day of your wedding, you won’t even notice me. I will blend into the background and capture candid, natural, full-of-emotion photographs which will provide you with a true reflection of your special day. Of course, I’ll be there to take charge for those all important group shots as required, but otherwise, sit back, relax and enjoy every moment of your wedding day.

PORTRAITURE

The power is in your hands.
All photoshoots are tailored to you.

I am flexible. Whether you’re after some photographs to mark the arrival of your newborn baby, or a whole inter-generational family photoshoot – I will be there to make you all feel relaxed, and capture some gorgeous natural shots, that you and your family will cherish forever.

My studio is portable (comfortably fitting up to 6 people) meaning that I am able to come directly to you – setting up in the very comfort of your own home. If this doesn’t sound like ‘you’, let’s take a walk in a local woodland, park or scenic area and capture some timeless, documentary style photos.
